We are launching a livestock judging team! Jeromesville native Seth Ebert is joining the ATI faculty as coach and lecturer in animal sciences.
Seth was successful enough in 4-H and FFA to garner a scholarship from Casper College in Wyoming. After earning an associate degree in animal science from Casper, he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University, where he also participated in livestock judging, succeeding in placings and reasons on the national level. Seth now frequently serves as swine judge on the state and national level.
“I not only want to make a competitive livestock judging program here at ATI but want to develop well-rounded stockmen and stockwomen that can go out and succeed in the livestock industry,” Seth says.
Ohio State ATI expects to first livestock judging team ready for competition in the fall of 2023, fielding both a first-year and sophomore team. Stay tuned for an announcement about an informational meeting later this month. You do not need to be a livestock major to participate!
